Description
REFERENCE TO RELATED APPLICATION

This application is based upon and claims the benefit of the priority of Japanese patent application No. 2006-198027, filed on Jul. 20, 2006, the disclosure of which is incorporated herein in its entirety by reference thereto.

TECHNICAL FIELD

This invention relates to a mobile terminal, such as a foldable mobile phone, corresponding to multipurpose multimedia.

BACKGROUND

Recently, use of mobile phones is diversified and developed in various fields, such as listening music, watching the television and the Internet connection. In such circumstance, many types of mobile phones and others corresponding to multipurpose multimedia having high functions have been developed. The user's demands that the high functions are easily used to enjoy the mobile phone life increase day by day.

In a mobile terminal, especially, a mobile phone, there are many cases that mounting spaces for display section, operation section and others are limited owing to its structure. Because the mounting spaces for the display section, the operation section and others are limited, in the mobile phone having the high functions, the users need to perform complicated operations step by step when they use a desired function.

If the user watches a received picture by using the mobile phone which has multiple functions including a receiving function, for example, the user performs sequentially an operation converting from a standby screen to a main menu and an operation to watch the received picture.

Meanwhile, an ordinary mobile phone has one display section, and the user inputs a telephone number for telephone conversation while looking at the display section and watches the television with the display section. A relatively large display is easy to watch when watching the television. In the mobile phone, however, there are many cases that the mounting space for the display section is limited, and therefore there is a limit to make the display large.

To cope with this Patent Document 1 discloses a mobile electronic device having multiple output displays, a display enlarging mechanism which connects display surfaces of the output displays in one plane side by side, and a display controller which displays one output picture on the output displays dividing the output picture.

On the other hand, since there are many cases where the display section displays something like a telephone number of a communication partner in the telephone conversation, and therefore the display section is not frequently viewed, a large display would not be necessary.

The state illustrated in FIG. 1D (FIG. 2A) is referred to as a first use state below. On the other hand, in the state illustrated in FIG. 1C, the front side illustrated in FIG. 2B is formed. The state illustrated in FIG. 1C (FIG. 2B) is referred to as a second use state below.

A surface formed by the front side of the first housing section 100 and the front side of the second housing section 200 is referred to as a first use surface MF1 a. A surface formed by the front side of the third housing section 300 and the front side of the fourth housing section 400 is referred to as a second use surface MF1 b. A surface formed by the front side of the first housing section 100 and the front side of the fourth housing section 400 is referred to as a third use surface MF1 c. A surface formed by the front side of the second housing section 200 and the front side of the third housing section 300 is referred to as a fourth use surface MF1 d.

FIG. 3 is a block diagram illustrating the internal configuration of the mobile phone MF1. The second housing section 200 has a control section 201, a display controlling section 202, a memory section 203, a speech processing section 204, a speaker 205, a microphone 206, a wireless section 207, an antenna 208, an input section 209, and sensors 210, 211.

The control section 201 controls the whole mobile phone MF1 based on controlling programs of various types storing in a ROM according to an operation information input from each input section.

The display controlling section 202 outputs an image to be displayed by the display section and controls the display of each display section based on an instruction of the control section 201. The display controlling section 202 controls at least one display section of each housing section according to the use state sensed by the sensor 210 or sensor 211, for example.

The memory section 203 stores data of various types such as a telephone directory.

The speech processing section 204 outputs a received speech information, a speech information made by the control section 201 and others to each speaker, and performs processing converting a speech information input from each microphone.

The wireless section 207 is connected with the antenna 208 and performs processing transmitting and receiving information of various types. The antenna 208 may be built-in in the mobile phone MF1.

The input section 209 has a numeric keys (or keypads) and the like and outputs an operation information input by the user to the control section 201.

The sensor 210 senses the first use state of the mobile phone MF1 when the mobile phone assumes this state and outputs the sensed information to the control section 201.

The sensor 211 senses the second use state of the mobile phone MF1 when the mobile phone assumes this state and outputs the sensed information to the control section 201.

The first housing section 100 has a display section 101, a input section 102 and a speaker 103. The third housing section 300 has a display section 301, an input section 302 and a speaker 303. The fourth housing section 400 has a display section 401 and an input section 402.

The display sections 101, 301, 401 are a liquid crystal display section displaying various images output by the display controlling section 202.

The input sections 102, 302, 402 have a plurality of input keys and Output the operation information input by the user to the control section 201.

The speakers 103, 303 are speakers outputting the speech information output by the speech processing section 204.

Next, an action of the mobile phone MF1 will be explained. The mobile phone MF1 is usually used in the first use state or second use state.

The second use surface MF1 b in the first use state is mainly suitable for playing a game using operation buttons of the input section 302 of the third housing section 300 and the display section 401 of the fourth housing section 400. On the other hand, the first use surface MF1 a in the first use state is mainly suitable for the telephone conversation because the formulation of the first use surface MF1 a is substantially similar to the ordinary mobile phone.

In the first use state, if the telephone conversation starts during a game is played using the second used surface MF1 b, the telephone call can be easily received by using the first use surface MF1 a which is a back side of the second use surface MF1 b.

As shown in FIG. 2B, the third use surface MF1 c in the second use state can form one display by the display section 101 and display section 401. The third use surface MF1 c is suitable for viewing a dynamic image using the mobile phone MF1 because a relatively large display can be used for viewing. If a game is played with a laterally elongated display/screen, the third use surface MF1 c may be used. On the other hand, the fourth use surface MF1 d in the second use state may be used for the telephone conversation because the fourth use surface MF1 d has a formulation changed in the form from the ordinary mobile phone.

Next, transformation (conversion or change in the form) of the mobile phone MF1 from the first use state to the second use state will be explained.

In the mobile phone MF1 of the first use state, the user holds a surrounding area of the first hinge section 500 and a surrounding area of the third hinge section 700, and pulls the first hinge section 500 and the third hinge section 700 in directions of aparting from each other. Then, the mobile phone MF1 assumes the second use state via the state shown in FIG. 1B.

When the transformation is finished, a sensor 211 senses the transformation to the second use state and outputs a sensed information to a control section 201. If the control section 201 receives the sensed information, the control section 201 sends an instruction to a display controlling section 202. The display controlling section 202 divides one-image information to be displayed and displays the divided image information on a display section 101 and a display section 401. By controlling the display like this, a combination of the display section 101 and a display section 401 forms one image information concerned, and therefore the image display of the display section can be enlarged easily.

On the other hand, when the control section 201 receives the sensed information, it sends an instruction to each section depending on setting, controls display of the input information, image display, output of microphone and speaker and the like suitably, and controls at least one display of the display sections corresponding to the use state.

Next, transformation of the mobile phone MF1 from the second use state to the first use state will be explained.

In the mobile phone MF1 in the second use state, the user holds a surrounding area of the second hinge section 600 and a surrounding area of the fourth hinge section 800, and pulls the second hinge section 600 and the fourth hinge section 800 in direction of aparting from each other. Then, the mobile phone MF1 assumes the first use state via the state shown in FIG. 1B.

When the transformation is finished, a sensor 210 senses the transformation to the first use state and outputs the sense information to the control section 201. If the control section 201 receives the sensed information, the control section 201 sends an instruction to the display controlling section 202 to display one image information, which has been divided and displayed with the display section 101 and the display section 401, with any one of the display sections 101 and 401 depending on setting.

On the other hand, when the control section 201 receives the sensed information, sends an instruction to each section depending on setting, controls the display of the input information, the image display, the output of the microphone and speaker and the like suitably, and controls at least one display of the display sections corresponding to the use state.

Second Exemplary Embodiment

FIG. 4 is plan views illustrating an external appearance of a mobile phone MF2 according to a second exemplar.

In the second exemplary embodiment, one part of the third housing section 300 in the mobile phone MF1 according to the first exemplary embodiment is modified, and the remaining formulation is same as that of the mobile phone MF1.

In the outer surface (front side) of the third housing section 300 a included in the mobile phone MF2, a display section 301 a, an input section 302 a and a speaker 303 a are provided. The input section 302 a has operation buttons suitable for an operation of an audio player. Thus a surface formed by the outer surface (front side) of the third housing section 300 a and an outer surface (front side) of a fourth housing section 400 may be effectively used for listening music using an audio player function.

In a state shown in FIG. 4B, a surface formed by the front side of the first housing section 100 and the front side of the fourth housing section 400 is suitable for viewing a dynamic image with the mobile phone MF2 in the same way as the first exemplary embodiment. On the other hand, a surface formed by a front side of a second housing section 200 and the front side of the third housing section 300 a has a configuration changed in design from an ordinary mobile phone, and therefore may be used for telephone conversation and for listening music using the display section 301 a, the input section 302 a and others.

In the state shown in FIG. 4B, one surface may be used for viewing a dynamic image, and the other surface may be used for listening music.

According to each exemplary embodiment, the transformation between the first use state and the second use state can be suitably performed by the easy operation. Also, since two use surfaces are provided in each use state, four different use surfaces can be provided in one mobile phone.

If one function is assigned to each use surface, and a setting is made so as to start the function corresponding to each use surface when the transformation to each use state is finished, for example, start states of at least four functions can be easily operated in one mobile phone.

Also, since by sensing each use sate by the sensors, the setting corresponding to each use state can be performed automatically by way of software, too, it is unnecessary to do a complicated operation for starting a desired function. Variations can be further increased by performing a display control such as reversing of the display of the display section.

The mobile phone MF1 may be transformed and used according to the uses, giving an example that the third use surface MF1 c is convenient for viewing the television, whereas the second use surface MF1 b is easier to operate a game, etc.

The mobile phone can be also compatible to various future services because four use surfaces can be easily operated in one mobile phone.

By making the formulation simple so as to eliminate influence on the functional property, consideration can be given so as not to lose functions of the conventional mobile phone. Also a roll to structurally support practicing various functions can be performed.

According to each exemplary embodiment, in the mobile phone having a plurality of functions, the operation to use a desired function is easy when the desired function is used. In the mobile phone having a plurality of functions, the display can be easily converted so as to correspond to the use of the desired function when the desired function is used.

Each use surface shown in each exemplary embodiment may be made to a use surface suitable for use(s) other than the telephone, game, viewing the television and music player.

Each exemplary embodiment may be applied to a mobile phone having a function receiving television images

INDUSTRIAL APPLICABILITY

In addition to the mobile phone, the present invention may be applied to a mobile device, an information processing device corresponding to multipurpose multimedia and others, such as a PDA, a digital camera, an audio player and the like.

Although the prevent invention is explained based on the above exemplary embodiments, the present invention is not limited to the above exemplary embodiments. The present invention may include any modification and adjustment to the exemplary embodiments within the entire disclosure (including the claims) of the present invention based on the basic technical idea or concept. Within the scope of the claims of the present invention, various combinations and selections of disclosed elements are available. A further problem, object and exemplary embodiments of the present invention become apparent from the entire disclosure of the present invention including the claims.
